Kate & Vaiben’s Romantic Cotswolds Wedding
at Lords of the Manor Hotel, Upper Slaughter, Cotswolds
“I cannot say enough good things about Grace and Bradley — they are lovely, kind and professional videographers, but their work truly speaks for itself.– Kate
I adore our wedding videos and they couldn’t have done a better job capturing all the special moments that made up our wedding day.
We feel so grateful that we had them on our team, and would recommend them unreservedly to others.”
Kate & Vaiben,
Your wedding day in The Cotswolds, was wonderful to be part of. We loved staying at The Lords of the Manor Hotel, it was an incredible retreat into the beautiful Cotswolds countryside. And it was really special to be there as your guests gathered from across the globe to celebrate with you both.
Your wedding was idyllic in the truest sense. Getting ready at Lords of the Manor and then taking a short stroll through the village, with villagers cheering their good tidings, to the beautiful traditional Church to say I do.
There is something very special about Upper Slaughter – timeless, honest and simply beautiful. The perfect setting for your romantic, traditional English wedding. And for this to be the place for an Australian and an American who had an unlikely meet-cute in London to wed – it’s a storybook romance.
In his speech, Vaiben talked about how grateful he is for every moment of his life leading up to the moment he met Kate. Because if he had made a different choice along the way, or found himself in different circumstances he may never have found her.
For me, that is the incredible miracle of love stories: the way a million seemingly insignificant moments and choices lead us to the moment we find our person.
So many small seemingly insignificant choices (and a few huge ones) led you both to your wedding day. Your story is one that makes it hard to doubt fate and miracles. Filming you say I do in front of your family and friends from across the globe was a real joy.
Every detail of your wedding was carefully thought out. From the bespoke detailing on the back of Kate’s Galia Lava wedding gown, to the monogrammed napkins from The Embroidered Napkin Company. We loved the whimsical, wildflower inspired bouquets and floral arch The Rose Shed created for you, they fit so well into the Lords of the Manor’s beautiful scenery.
Vanilla Pod Bakery’s basket weave cake was a true masterpiece, I know it was something, Kate, you had been dreaming of for a long time, and it was truly special. Especially as all your family and friends gathered round to celebrate the end to a beautiful day.
We loved working with Camilla and Botias again, two of our favourites. It was a beautiful day, and one we’ll never forget.
Sending all our love for your married life together, as always,
Bradley & Grace
